Color Schemes in IntelliJ IDEA (Light and Dark)
A freebie - sharing my color configurations for IntelliJ IDEA editors (code) and the related family of IDEs
Note: This was tested on 12.04, but should work for later versions as well.
Note: This works for Oracle’s Java installed through an external repository (you can the find instructions here on the site). Do your own search for other installations.
First you need to edit your Unix user’s config file that contains your environment variables and your access path. My editor is Sublime Text (find installation on the site here). Any other editor that supports command line is fine as well (like GEdit, nano, vim, etc).
By default, your Ubuntu comes with
bash. Open a file called
.bashrc in your Home directory:
sudo sublime-text ~/.bashrc
Then, add the following lines to the end of your config file:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle export JAVA_HOME
Shorter version is:
but this doesn’t work on all versions of Bash. When done editing, save the file and re-source the config files:
Optionally (almost never necessary), you can restart the machine:
sudo reboot now
In case you’re using
zsh instead of
bash, your config file will be
~/.zshrc instead – but since you have z-shell you probably already know that.
